Windows 7: TFGHT is compressed

17 Jan 2011   #1

windows 7 32 bit
TFGHT is compressed

Hello this might have come up before but I already tried this method:

Insert the installation DVD in your system and start the pc above.
Click Repair your computer.
Then click on Load Driver.
Go to Computer.
Right click on the partition your installation previously compressed> Properties.
Then uncheck "Compress drive to increase space available".
Then close all windows to restart the computer.

It was already unchecked. So now have no idea where to go next. Can anyone help?

BTW i had XP installed on one partition and I installed Win7 on another. The other partition was running Vista before i did a clean Win 7 install over it and then the problem started

Make sure you have the latest BIOS version update. If so, reset your CMOS:

Is this a new install failing to start?

Did you delete or format the Vista partition before installing Win7 from booted DVD?

Where did you get Win7? Did you burn the DVD yourself? How do you plan to activate it?

Try booting the Win7 DVD Repair console or Repair CD, accept any offered repair. If it doesn't start, boot back in to run Startup Repair repeatedly. Startup Repair - Run 3 Separate Times

If this fails, use DVD/Repair CD command line to mark Win7 partition active, then run Repairs again: Partition - Mark as Active

Try a partition-specific wipe of Vista partition using free Partition Wizard bootable CD before reinstalling Win7.

Using compressed air.
I bought a can of compressed air to clean the keyboard of my laptop. When I used it, the air came out very cold. I'm sure that is not unusual since that's the way air conditioners work. However it made the keyboard very frosty and when it thawed out the keyboard was a little damp. It makes me...

Compressed Air
I try to use compressed air to clean out my computer every month. I recently bought a different brand than I had been using. I read the label on it, probably something I had not done before. On the front it says "Dust and Lint Remover" rather than jus "Compressed Air". It also says that it can...
